2 weeks in Thailand...

Posted by Krishano912 on 15/6/2014 at 08:59

I'm looking to book a flight to Thailand for the end of November. Will be landing in Bangkok and plan to spend a night there before heading to the coast for some beach and partying. I also want to take in some culture so would be grateful if anyone could recommend three places that could fulfil my wants? Ideally alternating between taking in culture/land activities one day and a lazy beach day the next and partying at night. (Not a massive party animal these days but would like to experience eve ...

Flooding in parts of Northern / Central Thailand

Posted by DLuek on 6/9/2014 at 22:07

It's that time of the year again! Bangkok Post reporting here that the Yom River and some other waterways are overflowing and causing some fairly serious flooding in parts of Central and Northern Thailand. The photo at the top of the article was taken in the district just north of Sukhothai town and historical park, so motorbiking to Si Satchanalai might not be the best idea right now. However I just spoke with a staff member from Lotus Village, an excellent guesthouse in Sukhothai, and she ...

Homestays

Posted by Morganj24 on 15/9/2014 at 08:59

I'm currently researching for my SE Asia trip next year. Reading through the Lonely Planet SE Asia on a shoestring book and I'm liking the idea of getting involved in a homestay within each country just so I can fully immerse myself in the culture. The first homestay recommendation I have come across in the book is no more I've had a Google but am reluctant to go with anything that I've not had recommended. So if anyone can recommend any homestay throughout SE Asia let me know. Thanks in adva ...

Dear fellow travelers, We - 5 adults - travel during 10 full days in South Thailand early January.

Bangkok's finest street food

Posted by comtam3000 on 23/8/2014 at 04:12

When I was in Chiang Mai I ate kao kaa moo served by this lady in a cowboy hat. It was easily the tastiest I've ever had, and apparently that was no coincidence. From what I understand, the green/white bowl on her sign signifies that her stall is one of the city's more distinguished. Last time I was in Bangkok I spotted another street food stall with the same award on their sign, and the dish they served was delicious. Does anyone know what this award is called and how I can find out more abou ...

Looking for Chiang Mai Accommodation Recommendations

Posted by Surefolly on 4/8/2014 at 12:18

Have been to Chiang Mai before (in 2003) and am looking for a new place to stay. I will be traveling with my wife and our two sons (ages 8 & 11).

Booking first days accomodation in Bangkok online?

Posted by AK169 on 29/8/2014 at 08:08

Hi, My girlfriend and I are heading into Bangkok on 25th September, to start our 6 months travel around SEA. We were thinking it would be a good idea to book our first 2/3 days of accommodation online so that we don't have to worry too much when getting off the plane. The problem we are having is everything looks quite pricey and suspicious especially compared to what we've read on here. Any recommendation on specific sites we should be using? / Places to check out? Or are we better off, headin ...
